Watch How We Make Your Family Our Family
Hi, I'm Mindy,
the Executive Director for The Havens at Antelope Valley.
I’ve been working in skilled nursing communities since I was in junior high. I loved the stories I would hear and the genuine smiles that would welcome me. Volunteering with seniors made me feel like I was making a big difference in people’s lives.
After graduating from The University of Redlands, I became an Activities Assistant and loved organizing games, ice cream socials, exercise programs, and other large and small group activities in a skilled nursing community. It was not long before I became a Social Services Director (SSD) where I was able to make a difference in the lives of those I encountered. After 13 years as an SSD, I studied under my mentor and became a licensed Nursing Home Administrator (NHA) and a Residential Care For the Elderly (RCF) Administrator.
As an NHA and RCFE Administrator since 2013, I have been given the privilege and entrusted with the care of my residents. As a leader, I’m passionate about the success of our community. It takes an entire team of housekeepers, servers, cooks, nurses, maintenance workers, medication technicians, office staff, and care attendants all working together to achieve one common goal.
No one person’s job is more important than another’s, we all simply have different but vital responsibilities. In my role as the Executive Director, I am committed to collective accountability, providing quality care, and creating positive experiences in the lives of community members.
I have an open-door policy and welcome all residents, families, and staff to stop by or feel free to call me anytime. I believe respectful communication and trusting relationships are the keys to success. I am here to serve our residents, staff, and community and look forward to getting to know you.
We would love for you to schedule an in-person or virtual tour and become part of our ever-growing family.
